We stayed overnight while we were in town to see a concert. Check in was fast and easy. It was a short walk to the concert. And in the morning breakfast was simple and the manager remembered us and asked us about the concert. Clean and friendly.

Accommodations were fine for two nights. We were next to the pool , breakfast room, office on the first floor. The second night was very noisy. Much of the night(Saturday) many people partying till 3pm along with motorcycle throttling just to make noise. The attendant at the front desk said he heard the motorcycles, but didn't do any thing about...

The hotel is located in downtown which also means the neighborhood might not be as ideal for a walk at night but what do you expect. The hotel is pretty clean, and the grounds are well maintained. The room is very clean, however I can hear most of the movement from my neighbors and upstairs tenants (not conversations, just steps)...

I have stayed here in the past but it has been years. The location is downtown. We stayed here as we were going to the comedy improv and wanted to hang out downtown for some cocktails and beer. We arrived around 4ish on Saturday Aug 6th and the guy at the front desk was just blah. No greating no communcation....

Great location - walking distance to San Jose State University. Great value - breakfast and free parking included, which is better than other hotels in the area - and at a lower price. My room, right next to the breakfast room, was very noisy. A co-worker stayed in another room, which was quiet. I could only get the wireless internet...
